River's Edge (1986) Shooting Locations [UPDATED]

River's Edge is without a doubt one of my top ten favorite movies of all time. I took some time and searched out the areas in Tujunga, California where it was mostly filmed. However, the river scenes were actually shot in Carmichael, California – those are included in the update (scroll to the bottom).

Matt's home on Redmont - still looks pretty similar.

Like They Did To That Piggo Over At That Crazy Farm!

Here are a couple photos that Joe Cook posted on his group Cook's Horror Central, from the hands of special effects artist Louis Lazzara who worked on multiple Friday the 13th films (III & V) as well as multiple Nightmare on Elm Street (1, 5, Freddy's Dead, Freddy's Nightmares) films as well as an extensive resume including Halloween H20, Teen Wolf Too and The Addams Family.

Really Cool Night Of The Living Dead (1990) Photo

William Butler and John Iwanonkiw rehearse a scene in Night of the Living Dead
This photo came from the Facebook page of John Iwanonkiw, and is a behind the scenes shot of he and William Butler rehearsing the scene where Butler's character dies in an explosion.  Iwanonkiw was portraying a zombie in the film, and has become a serious actor and was (and still is) a native resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

First Jason - Jason is Watching (Video)

I will clarify that I am not a fan of Ari's music – not my style – but I will say that I love that Ari has engaged the fans and embraced them (even if it's for profit) completely. Even though he has only a few seconds of infamy, he has become a fan favorite.

With that being said, here's a really cool re-do of the video done my little brother. Check it out.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) Rema... I mean "meta" (LOL)

This movie was bound to have a modernized version made, and probably one of the last good slasher films out there that could handle an update. Years back the Gray brothers of the Guts and Gory fame talked about lensing a remake of this film, and apparently it fell through.

UGH! A Cheerleader Camp Sequel?

This may sound bitter, but I am so tired of these revival films exploiting old franchises and movies to capture the old audience with a new, shitty, film using the name for sales. We see this all the time and 95% of the time the movies are unwatchable.

Friday the 13th: Part V (Tina & Eddie's Death) Possible Filming Location

Turns out this was not the area the scenes were filmed – albeit still off of Mulholland. Please click this link for an updated entry with the verified locations.

A scene from the movie.
All of the water grass has long died from no water. 
Friday the 13th: Part V has been probably one of the hardest locations to find. Just recently we found the location of the house and the cafe, but the areas where Tina and Eddie were killed a well as the trailer park are still elusive.

I wasn't very familiar with the area until recently, and way back in the day (2008?) when I found John Robert Dixon on his employer's site and emailed him he told me that his death scene was shot "off of Mulholland somewhere" and "I think Malibu Creek was the name".
